Tis the season for shopping for loved ones, but where can you find something unique, fun and affordable? And what about that hard to shop for person who has everything? Main Street has you covered. The following stores have several items under $50 which you are not likely to encounter at retail chains.
Park at China Bridge for 6 hours of free parking and make your way down the street to Mountain Town Body. I like to start at the bottom so that I feel like I’m burning calories walking up the hill. Mountain Body has a locally made hand washing treatment that is amazing. Manager Brigitte Dartear will help you find the perfect beauty essential gift or pick something up for yourself after your long day of quality gift buying. This is the perfect gift for a book club gift, or an exchange gift and is totally affordable at about $35.
Next you can head up to Livin’ Life where they display affordable art and jewelry. Owner Jill Rathburn will show you what’s hot this year. It could be his and hers martini glasses for about $35 a piece or an intertwined metal necklace with a colorful stone $45. Located next to the Claim Jumper this quaint boutique is well worth the visit.
Southwest Indian Traders is an eclectic mix of Southwestern goods, as well as, plaques with funny sayings like “ WANTED “Good Woman” must be able to do house chores and shovel horse stalls. Must have horse & saddle, please send photo of horse & saddle“. After twenty-seven years on Main Street, Indian Traders is well known for its authentic Native American rugs and moccasins, but this old consignment store is so much more. One item that caught my eye was the moose drinking wine for about $40.
Looking for a unique gift that made by one of our artists here in town. Make sure to check out Art Works. Resident artist Bruce Larrabee creates these beautiful mugs here in Park City for your enjoyment for only $24 with a logo and $21 without.
And who wouldn’t want the best stocking stuffer ever? Don’t forget your fur from Alaska Fur Gallery. For only $25 you can keep your favorite man warm all winter long. One of their best sellers and talking points you too can give a fur for the holidays.
Park City Museum has a plethora of entertaining gift, especially for kids. Between games, magnet rocks and old mining memorabilia you can find a stocking stuffer or two.
Located towards the top of the street is Sock City. If the name doesn’t get you, the colorful socks will. The rainbow of colors in this store is likely to catch your eye, but thigh highs and ankle shorts will keep you there. From superhero to your favorite team there are socks for all occasions.
To close, we encourage you to shop Main Street for all of your holiday needs. As Shirin has shown, there is an abundant amount of unique, affordable items your loved ones are sure to love.
